free expression, to express their speech. we protect the first amendment in san francisco. but the buffer zone ordinance that we are introducing is one that recognizes that we need strike a balance between the right to free speech and the right of women, especially to access health care. no right is absolute. and the courts have found that buffer zones like the one that san francisco -- that we are introducing today, in fact are narrowly tailored and survive legal scrutiny. the narrow scope of this ordinance ensures that the facilities we're talking about, and we are talking about freestanding health clinics which are the most vulnerable when it comes to being targets of this kind of activity, that those facilities are indeed protected. i want to talk a little bit about what the law in this area is. the right to free speech is not absolute. the effort to regulate this kind of speech is something that has to be done carefully. it has to be done in a way that is narrowly tailored to achieve an important government interest. we believe that we are doing that precisely here. t
